I have a 17 inch MBP running Lion and Windows 7 with a boot camp partition. My mac side has 500GB of space, and my windows 7 partition has 250GB. Recently I shrunk my disk space on the windows 7 partition by going to Control Panel->searching "partition" and shrinking it, so now my boot camp partition has 132GB. However, I thought that space was going to be moved to my Mac OS X partition, but it didn't. Where is that memory space? It can't be flat out lost, can it? I also tried expanding it back but I can't click that option. It's greyed out. Help is greatly appreciated, I really do not want to lose those 118gigs. I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but I really need it. Thanks.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
